Troels looks a bit like a dandy meets cowboy meets biker, but as a person he is a humble, down-to-earth, young man. Still he manages to pull of his style by being consistant to his way of dressing and use of accessories. For example; he can’t go out the door without his rings on and love to collect jewellery from around the world.
Get to know this well dressed man and read about his biggest fashion fail from when he was 14 years old…
What were you like in high school?
Definitely much younger than now.
You’re a new addition to the crayon box. What color would you be and why?
I would naturally choose the color black, as I like the fact that is has no color, but recently I bought a brown suede shirt and a brown knit, so I’ll pick brown.
What’s your favourite 90’s jam?
In general I don’t like that much music from the 90’s, I go further back and listen more from the 70’s and early 80’s. But one that stands out for me is definitely Electric Wizard or when it is more slow, My Morning Jacket, which I am actually listening to just this moment.
Your three favourite bands?
Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones and Electric Wizard.
How do you drink your coffee?
I would love to say black, but I have to admit that I like it with a splash of milk.
Your signature drink/cocktail?
I like a good whiskey on the rocks, but if I am to have a drink I always chose a Gin & Tonic.
Describe your favourite material to someone who is blind:
My favorite material can be worn as every piece of clothing or footwear, it can feel soft as a baby’s bottom or rough as alligator’s back. The material is very flexible and the color can change. This material never gets out of style and it just keep getting cooler and cooler.
What can be bought today and still be worn in 10 years?
This is the answer from the above question; leather in any forms.
What’s the oldest piece of clothes you have and still uses?
A Levi’s western shirt in denim from 2005. It was a present from my mom and it is still one of my favorite shirts until this day. Since then I have bought a lot of denim shirts and every time I go travel, there is another one added to the collection.
What have been your biggest fashion-fail?
When I was 14 I had my hair bleached which turned out to be the same color as a carrot. That was kind of unlucky.
Style wise; which superhero are you?
Lucky Luke, because he’s a true cowboy.
How do you personalize your style?
I love to find my own style of jewelry and I always wear a lot of heavy silver rings. This is also something I like to buy when I am traveling which gives it a story and makes it unique for me. I also love to mix a new piece of clothing with something vintage, and hereby make it personal and different.
How do you pick your accessories?
I usually wear the accessories that I feel is a natural part of me. I can never leave the house without my jewelry.
Describe your style in 2 words?
Denim and “Rock’n Roll.”
How many minutes do you use on grooming yourself in the morning?
What is your “Cant-live-without”-grooming product?
My pomade for my hair; Suavecito.
